This hat is inspired by my desire to have a hat that is both practical and fun! It is fur lined, and has pockets at the ears to keep money, lip balm, even those little hand warmer things for REALLY cold days! As an added bonus, it glows in the dark. Let me repeat that. IT GLOWS IN THE DARK :)
Step 1: Supplies
Here are the things that you will need in order to complete this project...
A sewing machine (one that can do a straight stitch and a zig zag stitch)
Straight Pins and Hand Sewing Needles
Thread (conventional AND glow in the dark thread--this can be found at any local fabric store, and comes in an array of colors)
3 fabric choices
Fabric A (1/4 yd) is an outer fabric that will make up the ear flaps
Fabric B (1/2 yd) is a contrasting outer fabric that will create pockets etc...
Fabric C (1/2 yd) is a lining fabric (I chose a faux fur because it is soft, warm and doesn't make me feel guilty about wearing thumper on my head)
2 matching buttons
Paper for making a pattern (I just used computer paper)
An iron (preferably one with steam)
